    Absolute must have book!

    This is the third book by Mrs Nixon and an absolute must for every kitchen. It's part cookbook, part travelogue with gorgeous, colorful pictures from her own personal collection of travel pics. The recipes are delicious, easy to make, and wonderfully healthy. All the ingredients are easy to find; most will already be in your kitchen. Not only do we have a copy, but I have literally ordered one for everyone on my Christmas list. You should too!
